Immunizations and Travel Vaccines
Yes, your pharmacist can give you immunizations!
Flu shots are one of the most popular vaccines given by pharmacists. However, pharmacists are also licensed to give a variety of other immunizations.
Six things every global traveler should do
Follow the TSA 3-1-1 Rule
When packing carry-on luggage, include containers no larger than 3.4 oz. All liquids must be placed in one 1-qt., transparent, plastic, sealable bag. Check the TSA website if you have questions about specific types of liquids or gels.
Know Your Airline’s Baggage Policies
Your airline’s website provides details on the size, weight and allowable content for your baggage. Fees for overweight luggage may not be in your travel budget, so avoid unwelcome surprises.
Dress and Pack in Layers
Planes, trains and other vehicles can vary widely in temperature. Bring a lightweight travel blanket or jacket that you can use over your shoulders or on your lap. To adjust to variations in weather, wear and pack light layers that you can add or remove whenever you like.
Protect Your Valuables
Tourists are often an easy target for pickpockets. Keep valuables close to your body, and use theft-proof bags when possible. Be alert for suspicious activity. Use hotel safes to store items of high value.
Eat Where the Locals Eat
Regardless of where you travel, it’s the folks who live there year-round who can recommend the best restaurants.
Visit the Harrold’s Pharmacy Travel Vaccine Clinic Several Weeks Before Departure
International travel increases your risk for diseases that are uncommon in the United States. Protect yourself by visiting Harrold’s Pharmacy as soon as you begin making travel plans, because vaccines typically need to be administered several weeks before departure to allow your body time to develop immunity. The staff at Harrold’s Pharmacy will determine what vaccines are required based on your destination(s) and will administer the vaccines on site.
